Like all eBay Today entries, this one is being linked to look at and not necessarily to be bought, but if you are considering bidding on this lot do make sure to note the seller's low (albeit positive) feedback and lack of current activity before moving forward. It is always best to be an informed buyer when we're talking about auctions like this. Follow the link above to see the lot we all wish we could find stashed away safely at our grandparent's house.

I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker

I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
